Well hello there!
Can you believe that there are only 5 more days until Christmas? It seems to take forever to get here, and the *POOF* it is gone.
Boy I sound like a little kid don't I?
I can't help it, I have always been this way about Christmas, from as early as I can remember. I have so many wonderful memories of this time of year from my childhood, all the way to my kids being little, and now.
I think if I could go back and relive any Christmas though it would be when my kids were little.
The excitement and wonder in their little faces. From writing letters to Santa, decorating the house, and then the sleepless Christmas eve.
I would be woken up in the wee hours of Christmas morning by little voices.
The kids - "Momma" "Momma" "Momma"
Me - "What?"
The kids - In a verrrrrrrrrrry quiet whisper, "Santa was here"
Me - *gasp* "Really. You think so?"
The kids - "Yesssssssssss Momma, he was he was he was!!"
Me - "Well I am still tired, I think I will sleep a little longer and then we can go see"
Both of them, no longer whispering - "NNNOOOOOOOOO"
Me - "I'm up, I'm up!!"
The kids running out of my room - "YAYYYYYYYY"
Yup, I miss those times.
What is a favorite holiday memory for you?
As you can see, today we had the first snow of the year!
Actually the first measurable amount of snow in a couple of years if I am correct.
I turn into a 5 year old when it snows.
When Kevin woke me up, to let me know that I was right and he was wrong and it did in fact snow, I must have sounded like Cindy Lou Who.
"Wha a at.....is snowed? Ahh ahhh ooooooh"
I know, I am very strange. Kevin just shakes his head when I get like that. So just go with it OK?
Do you get excited when it snows? Especially around Christmas?
